Notes

See standard deviation for more on this concept. Basically, if everyone agrees that an author's books are good or bad, the standard deviation is low. If opinions differ a lot, the standard deviation of ratings is high. The "completist" score identifies authors of books people have in droves. All statistics are updated nightly, if possible, or more frequently, if possible.
